Look out for this patch and be diligent in implementing it to the machine. Here is one vulnerability (CVE-2017-8620) that has high potential to be of parallel to the WannaCry and NotPetya vulnerabilities -- it is described as 'The Next WannaCry Vulnerability'. Finally, if patching is planned but delayed, Microsoft's recommended temporary mitigation against CVE-2017-8620 should be deployed: disable the WSearch facility within Windows.
